GOLDEN IN DEATH J.D. ROBB
Pediatrician Kent Abner received the package on a beautiful April morning. Inside was a cheap trinket, a golden egg that could be opened into two halves. When he pried it apart, highly toxic airborne fumes entered his body―and killed him.
After Eve Dallas calls the hazmat team―and undergoes testing to reassure both her and her husband that she hasn’t been exposed―it’s time to look into Dr. Abner’s past and relationships. Not every victim Eve encounters is an angel, but it seems that Abner came pretty close―though he did ruffle some feathers over the years by taking stands for the weak and defenseless. While the lab tries to identify the deadly toxin, Eve hunts for the sender. But when someone else dies in the same grisly manner, it becomes clear that she’s dealing with either a madman―or someone who has a hidden and elusive connection to both victims.
|I received this book from Macmillan Publishers for an honest review.|
I must start with that I am late with this review; I have gotten behind on so many. This is my first time reading one of these authors' books after hearing about them for many years.
The book opens with a pediatrician receiving a package then dying soon afterward. Being called to the home Lt. Eve Dallas and her partner Delia Peabody begin the investigation. Soon it is discovered about an airborne toxin being dispersed from a golden egg. Now she and her partner must start with the package and find out who sent it and why would someone want this man dead, the man people like, well maybe not everyone.
The story keeps you going as the investigation crosses off one person after another and you the reader continue to wonder who is the killer. Meanwhile, you can tell that Eve Dallas and her husband are growing as a couple and it seems that she is changing in that relationship as well. Overall a very good book with really good characters. follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com
